The Fainting Goat Review



Three different mimosa flavors are on offer, though the champagne levels are high enough that you're largely just picking a color. Alcoholic juice pouches are also available, if you've always wanted to spend 14 hard-earned dollars on a spiked Capri Sun.



Fainting Goat makes the unusual choice of accentuating its small portions by serving them on large plates -- negative space is better suited to art than food, as a general rule. Even within the small portions, the protein is even smaller. If all-bread sandwich bites are your thing, this is the place for you



Our mimosa glasses were never empty, which will go a ways toward looking past a rather charm-free attitude. Unfortunately, that speed drops to zero the moment your table hits its two-hour limit.



Reservations are basically required, which dampens the walk-in spirit, but the packed house and the modern feel of the brick-laden interior fosters a lively experience.

Bindaas Review


Foggy Bottom


A single mimosa option's all that's on offer, but with saffron and some other mystery ingredients it doesn't get tiresome, and just as importantly, it's included with a brunch entree for the low, low price of $32.

Hank's Oyster Bar Review

Hank's Oyster Bar

Dupont Circle


Classic brunch items are on offer and quite generously portioned, but if you're into beach-adjacent animals, we'd endorse switching over to the main menu

We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
